Why should we live a just and virtuous life, rather than pursuing our own interests with no consideration for other people? What is the relationship between morality, happiness, and pleasure? How do we determine what is the morally right thing to do? These are some of questions that we will address in this course by studying some of the most important works of Western philosophy. We will begin with the opening of Plato s Republic, where Plato formulates a fundamental challenge to morality: Why be just rather than unjust if one can be unjust and get away with it? We will study next three works that are the source of the most influential paradigms in contemporary moral philosophy: 1) Aristotle s Nicomachean Ethics, which is a founding text for virtue ethics ; 2) John Stuart Mill s Utilitarianism, which is the main point of reference for utilitarian ethics ; and 3) Immanuel Kant s Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Moral, which is a major source for Kantian ethics. Aristotle construes morality as part of human flourishing and puts at the center of his ethical system the concepts of virtue and character. Mill bases his ethical system on the idea that an action is morally right if it maximizes the general happiness. Kant, finally, seeks to ground morality on rationality and emphasizes the concept of duty, the role of moral principles, and the importance of the agent s motivations. We will focus especially on the manner in which each of these works addresses the fundamental question raised by Plato. 1

Requirements and grade distribution REQUIREMENTS 1) Unannounced quizzes (between 6 and 10) on the readings assigned for the day, or on readings for past meetings of the class.

When feasible, the student must notify the instructor prior to the occurrence of any excused absence, but in no case shall such notification occur more than one week after the absence. 8. Penalties and make-up exams 1) Unannounced quizzes. When you miss a quiz, you get a 40% on that quiz. Your 3 lowest grades on the quizzes will be dropped.

More precisely, for n excused missed quizzes, you can take (n 3) make-up quizzes during 16 th week. So, for example, if you have excuses for 4 missed quizzes, you can take 1 make-up quiz during 16 th week. 2) Midterms and Final. There will be make-up exams for students who have an admissible excuse. If you miss an exam and you don t get in touch with the instructor within 7 days, you will get a 0 on that exam. 9.
